Why is everything landscape now?

Starting yesterday, I believe, the boards are all much wider and there's a large space between the second and third columns on the first page. I can't read an entire line of text unless I turn my iPad to the landscape orientation, which I hate. Why? There doesn't seem to be a logical purpose to widening everything. I also couldn't type in the post box until I disabled rich text. Again, things are getting worse, not better.

I have the same problem on my iPhone. Infuriating. But, at this point, words that our patience is appreciated and they are working to fix it are just laughable. No one is fixing anything. We get what we get. I love this place, for the people, not the infrastructure or the complete lack of communication, so I am rolling with it. It's the worst software ever. It's riddled with issues. The issues have been there for 6 months. They were "cleaning" some sort of cache and nothing could be fixed because of that. And then all of a sudden, nope, that hasn't started yet. We are just here with this ridiculously horrible software program. My love of my history with this place keeps me here. iVillage used to be awesome.

I don't even try to view iVillage on my iPhone, the sizing is too messed up. Granted, I didn't download the mobile app because I got the phone after the "upgrade" and had read how so many members couldn't access the boards via mobile.

I tried it on my phone yesterday and it's pretty much unusable there. It's like it's iPad size on a much smaller screen. 

Still no answer on this either.

I am also experiencing the landscape view on my iPad...I usually access the boards on my desktop so just noticing now that the issue still persists. I didn't see large spaces though.

Hi Shy,

I'm not seeing this on the desktop version, so it looks like it must be on just the mobile site. I'll pass it on and see what I can find out.

Thanks,
